    You wanna be the team that signs Carmelo Anthony for $2.4M, not the team that trades him for center Enes Kanter, forward Doug McDermott and the Chicago Bulls' 2018 second-round draft pick.

    2.4 million for a Ryno replacement that can get his own shot is nice, especially when we have the MLE to get a buyout candidate. Melo has a lot to prove for his next contract. That motivation should be good for us.

    Can CP3 teach Melo how to have heart?

    Lol I like how Clutch slid in the, "...and inadvertently creating the infamous stir with Jeremy Lin and his jersey number."

    Let's see how the LOFs respond to this, lol!

    Great article as always, Clutch! I think us losing out on Melo last offseason was such a blessing in disguise. It would have been really difficult to integrate both him and CP3 into the equation at the same time. And at the time, Melo was still coming off an all-star campaign the year before.

    Now, he has been (hopefully) humbled by his experience in OKC, and more importantly, CP3 + Harden have already established that they have a winning formula. Adding Melo now is figuring out where he fits into the formula, rather than building a formula around him + CP3 + Harden.

    Like seriously... What is there to lose? Low risk high reward & any situation with Ryno hdtting minutes taken away is a win.

    Denver Melo
    Knickerbocker Melo
    OKC Melo
    Houston Melo

    At least he is better than Joe Johnson ever was. Not just past age 35.

    But we get even older than with Ariza and Luc. Never thought that would happen.

    This offseason has screaming undervalued guys who have been mediocre (MCW borderline horrible) but could be better than mediocre.

    MCW, Ennis, Melo, who is next?

    Let's try to score 130 a game this season. I thought our offense bogged down like crazy towards the end of the season and we started to lose games.
